Early modern kinship: sexualities, materialities, localities
King's College, London
23-24th March, 2001
We are an endless mine to one another;
We are one another's wife, ever begetting
New births of love; we are father, friends, acquaintance,
We are, in one another, families
John Fletcher and William Shakespeare, 'The Two Noble Kinsmen'
The aim of this conference is to investigate various aspects of early
modern kinship in text and history. For our purposes, 'kinship' is
defined broadly as the sharing of characteristics or origins including,
but not limited to, blood relationships. By using this broad definition
we hope that papers will not be limited to talking about familial
structures, and that participants will feel free to discuss various
relationships which might constitute kinship.
The conference will include entrance to a production of the rarely
performed 'Love's Cure, or, The Martial Maid', by John Fletcher, Francis
Beaumont, and Philip Massinger.
